MARC train will be 1 car short

By Michael Bolden

MARC Train 852, an express to Camden Yards, will have one less car than usual. The Maryland Transit Administration says the shortage is due to the earlier train malfunction that left equipment out of position.

The MTA anticipates crowding on Train 852 and says passengers should consider taking the 5:16 or 6:43 Camden Line trains from Union Station.

MARC staff members will also be at two stations Wednesday to discuss upcoming changes to the Penn Line schedule. Bring your questions and concerns. The revamp, which adds shorter trains with more frequent service, is scheduled to take place March 14.

Staffers are scheduled to be at Halethorpe Station until 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and at the Aberdeen Station from 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.

On Thursday MARC staff plan to be at BWI Station from 3:30 until 7:30 p.m. and at Union Station from 3:15 to 6:45 p.m.
